HMB Endeavour's Circumnavigation of Australia

On 15 April 2011, the magnificent replica of James Cook�s HM Bark Endeavour commenced an historic circumnavigation of Australia. Built as a gift to the Australian people, Endeavour is following in the wake of our earliest European explorers, visiting major and regional ports right around Australia.

The voyage commenced in Sydney and traces James Cook�s original voyage 240 years ago when he became the first to chart the east coast in 1770. From Queensland Endeavour will sail across the Gulf of Carpentaria and the Top End to Darwin, before sailing into the Indian Ocean and along the Western Australian coast to Fremantle. The voyage will then see Endeavour cross the Great Australian Bight taking in South Australia and continuing around Tasmania before crossing Bass Strait to Victoria and returning home to Sydney by May 2012. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of Endeavour�s first voyage right around Australia.
